I wanted to tell you about a great project I have been involved with that has now come to fruition – the Diary Project 2008. An idea created and organised by Lucy of Fantazya it encompasses graphics donated by several creative artists. Here’s my interview with Lucy to tell you more…
1. Why and how did you decide to make a diary for 2008 featuring fellow artists?
I wanted a diary for myself, but the idea of collaboration came in a dream. I had that idea that every page was created by a different artist... When I woke up, the idea was still in my head and so I began the project.
2. How many artists are involved?
There are 392 pages and it's hard to say because a few artists did 2 pages... but I think that it's around 370.
3. What countries are the artists from?
Worldwide... US, UK, Belgium, Spain, Canada, Australia, etc.
4. Does the diary have information for each artist’s shop, including yours?
At the bottom of each page you can see the website address of the artist who did the page. The style design of the page gives you an idea of the work of each artist too... If you are curious and want to know more, just go look up the artist’s website... Personally, I will visit each shop, each day of 2008!
5. What date is the diary going to be for public sale and where?
It is already on sale for the public at the principal information page and at my Etsy shop - Diary 2008 Information page & Fantazya - Etsy shop
Also, some participants will sell diaries too, with their own cover decorations. There will be a link and a photo on the Diary 2008 Information page.
This sounds like a great way to find out about artists, their work and how you can shop with them.
So have you got your Diary for 2008?!
Here are my 2 pages…
